One fine day I quipped to my husband, "Hey, guess what..." and before I could finished my sentence, he asked "Is it going to cost me money...?" and I was tempted to box his ears there and then. Anyhoot, I proceed to tell him that I desperately need a day cream. I have a few night creams, there were five the last time I counted but only one, maybe two day creams and I needed something that packs a powerful hydration punch to my skin.
And that is how Dr. Hauschka Revitalising Day Cream found its way into my life.
|I tried researching and understanding the ingredients but I almost went cross eyed so I'll leave it here for anyone who is interested to know.|
|What it does|
|Housed in a glass bottle with a pump and the best part, it locks so no more spilling.|
|A yellowish light and runny lotion.|
Dr. Hauschka Revitalising Day Cream is housed in a luxurious glass bottle and comes with a pump. I love anything that comes with a pump as it's hygienic and it's easy to control the amount of product to dispense. The pump has a lock system which I've not seen before but I love that it gives extra prevention against spillage.
I find that the texture is leaning more towards a lotion than cream as it's light and runny. It feels very wet and slightly oily when I first apply to the skin but it did absorb quickly. A little goes a long way so this 100mL bottle will last me a long time.
Initially I was a little worried as the texture feels too light and I wondered if it would be enough to keep my dry skin in check but after 5 days of using this, my skin looked better than ever. I noticed my skin to be very fresh, revitalized and radiant. A couple of dry patch on my forehead had also disappeared within two weeks of incorporating this day cream into my routine.
While this is meant to be used as a day cream, I am currently using it twice a week as a night cream (I'm a rebel..) and wake up the next morning to a soft, dewy skin. And yes, it is dewy and not oily.
This day cream has been heaven sent for my parched, dehydrated skin however, it is not without fault. It has a very strong sweet plant scent which reminds me of a spa. As usual, I am not really bothered with fragrance in my skincare but those with very sensitive skin, be aware.
And lastly, the price. I bought this some time ago so I can't really recall the price but I do believe it's roughly CAD80.00 which is not much to be desired.
If you have dry, dehydrated skin then do give this a try. I personally think combination skin lovelies would love this too but apply only on the dry areas.
I have yet to use this under a foundation as I much prefer to leave my skin free of makeup whenever I am using this. The darn thing is pricey and I would rather let it do a good job on my skin without any makeup intrusion.
This was my first introduction to Dr. Hauschka and I must say, I am in love and am looking forward to picking up a few more products to try.
